Lack of holistic court support leaves survivors of domestic and sexual violence traumatised twice – ABC News

As the nation grapples with the scourge of domestic violence, survivors and advocates are baffled as to why many victims still end up alone in the court room.

Ms Fenner says the abuse was one trauma and the court process was another.

Like many victims of crime, Ms Fenner was called to give evidence and was cross-examined.

She had come to terms with the fact she would have to relive painful memories.

But she said she was not expecting — let alone offered any support through — what she described as a gruelling torrent of humiliation.

Ms Fenner’s close friend Kelly-Marie Daly has worked in the domestic violence support sector for years and said the case highlighted inadequacies within current support systems.

“The actual support these ladies need is not even being funded, it’s not on the agenda,” Ms Daly said.

ules Thompson said there was a frustrating lack of holistic support available — especially for criminal matters.

“[Support is] needed every day a week in the court system because there’s always criminal matters.”

“A Massive Crisis”: Majority of U.S. Mass Shootings Have Links to Domestic Violence | Democracy Now!

With the U.S. marking at least 242 mass shootings so far in 2021, according to the Gun Violence Archive, we speak with policy expert Julia Weber about the link between gun violence and domestic violence. “We know that this is a massive crisis that we need to address much more effectively,” says Weber, the implementation director at the Giffords Law Center. A 2020 Bloomberg analysis looking at nearly 750 mass shootings over a six-year span found about 60% of the shootings were either domestic violence attacks or committed by men with histories of domestic violence.

Posie Parker’s Graphic Protest Against Stonewall Policies

Stonewall’s June 7th conference was met with protesters led by Posie Parker wielding shocking images of transition surgeries performed on young women.

The point was to highlight the potential harm caused by promoting the idea that children can be ‘born in the wrong body.’ Ms Parker explained the reasoning behind the shock tactic of using images of surgically mutilated bodies: “We are trying to make sure that teachers promoting this ideology are fully informed as to what it entails, we want to ensure no member of the public, parent or person with a duty of care to children can excuse the harm they endorse by saying they didn’t know what it meant.”

The message of Friday’s protesters wasn’t a radical one. It should not be controversial to oppose surgeries and hormone treatments for confused young people who experience distress in their bodies; it should be common sense. The fact that organisations like Stonewall are engaging in increasingly authoritarian tactics to stifle critics suggests that they know this. As pressure builds it is clear that having cemented itself in the baseless ideology of transgenderism, Stonewall is beginning to crumble.

Seven athletes, including Petrillo, will compete on the Italian Team for Bydgoszcz 2021 in the women’s category, and 16 in the men’s.
